Darkest Hour stands apart from more routine historical dramas.
To celebrate the 18th annual Roger Ebert's Film Festival, Illinois Public Media and the University of Illinois College of Media have created a new documentary, "Ebertfest 2016: Center of the Universe." The title references Ebert's description of Urbana as the "center of the universe," and his legacy is detailed in this 30-minute piece, as well as the history of Ebertfest. The program will also include a short preview of Ebertfest 2016, which runs from Wednesday, April 13th, through Sunday, April 17th at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, Illinois.
Among the people featured on the program are Chaz Ebert, the late movie critic's wife and the festival co-founder, co-producer and emcee; Chicago movie critics Richard Roeper and Michael Phillips; and Steven Bentz, director of the Virginia Theatre.
"Ebertfest 2016: Center of the Universe" will premiere at 9 p.m. Monday, April 4th, on WILL-TV, with a repeat broadcast at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 7th. It also will air on WEIU at 7 p.m. Friday, April 8th; on WTTW in Chicago at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, April 10th; and on WTVP in Peoria at 9:30 p.m. Friday, April 15th, with an encore on that station at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, April 17th.
